Subject: Adding up to my existing knowledge of Elisabeth
Having through some books regarding Empress Elisabeth before, I didn't have much expectation to gather something when i saw this book. Nevertheless the plus point for this book was it came with the detail regarding Her Imperial Majesty funeral which i am interested with.

I would highlight some interesting points found in this book:
1. The vast popularity enjoyed by Franz Josef derived by great measure the love of Habsburg subject to Her Imperial Majesty. The love of Magyars to Elisabeth path way to the formation of Dual Monarchy.THIS FACT WAS OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGE BY THE EMPEROR HIMSELF.
2. She was not being nicknamed THE CIRCUS RIDER by Viennese for no reason.
- she had no problem to ride horse without saddle.
- she could kneel on horseback.
- She even expertly standing on horseback while riding it.
3. Emperor Franz Josef soon established Elisabeth Order specially for women after her assassination in memory of His consort.
4. Her wedding dress being disassembled and being made priestly garment for the church in Budapest.Her bridal wreath encircled the picture of Virgin Mary in Loretto Chapel. All done by her request.
5. Witness recount on Elisabeth assassination.
